    Printing a picture?

    How would I send a graphic file to the printer?
    Thanks for your help,

    Which OS/Compiler?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    And, what graphics format? If you have a choice, and not too many different files... A bitmap is the most simple and most universal format.

    There are no standard C++ graphics functions. This is one of the things that makes standard C++ so "portable". A program written in pure-standard C++ doesn't need any graphics to work on any system.

    Every compiler/graphics library is different... Some compilers don't have any graphics.

    I am using MSVC++, on Win 2k. I really don't care about the file format.

    does that mean you can use any file format we feel like telling you to use?

    You probably need to head on over to the Windows programming board and ask this there. Essentially when you print you are just drawing to a different device context.
